The Mediterranean Games are a series of multi-sports and cultural events that fall within the Olympic movement, between the regional games, held by the coastal countries bathed by the Mediterranean Sea. The city of Tarragona has been selected as the headquarters of the 18th Mediterranean Games 2017, given that the city has over 2,000 years of history in sport internationally.
The coastline of the Costa Daurada offers over sixty different beaches. Thanks to the wide range of services at the beaches of the Costa Daurada, year after year they have been recognised with various awards guaranteeing their quality, such as the blue flags (granted by the Foundation for Environmental Education in Europe).
Since its founding, trade has been an important sector in the economy of Tarragona. The great advantage offered by the city is that shopping can be done on foot thorough different pedestrian areas and the Rambla Nova, the authentic artery of the city. The old town, in a very appropriate framework, still houses some shops within its walls. It is also important to highlight the central market with fresh products.
Tarragona has great culinary options. The flavours and traditional Mediterranean scents are the basis of its gastronomy. The richness of the area and its fresh raw materials, fish and seafood of the highest quality, as well as excellent handicrafts create a long list of delicious recipes. The Mediterranean diet, cherished throughout Spain, is included on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and faithfully reflects historical wisdom as well as the cultural history of the largest fishing port in Catalonia.
Tarragona is a city with a clear maritime leaning; with its pleasant, mild climate it is ideal for doing any sport, especially watersports; sailing, windsurfing, rowing, water-skiing, scuba-diving etc., all of which can be done from either the marina or port. It’s worth highlighting the wide variety of adventure sports which can be enjoyed in the area, such as routes by bike, quad, segway, and climbing etc. Furthermore, the area offers many footpaths, and its incredible countryside and excellent installations make walking trips an unforgettable experience.
